♻️ Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. ♻️
Our community service program allows individuals to complete volunteer hours according to their own schedule. KFMB provides a flexible opportunity for those with honor society hours or court-ordered hours.
The first step is to sign a KFMB volunteer release form. (Click on button - Hold Harmless Form to complete) Once you have done this, send an e-mail to email@example.com stating that you have completed the form and when you plan to begin volunteering.
Important: For court-ordered community service, the check-in and check-out emails described below are mandatory. We cannot verify your service hours to the court without these emails. Travel time is NOT INCLUDED in service hours.
GUIDELINES FOR PICKING UP TRASH ON YOUR OWN:
1. Contact Marilyn via text, 972-900-5549 , before you go out, to see if we have a specific area that needs attention. If she does not reply right away you may choose an area from the attached list or any public area IN FLOWER MOUND that you see trash.
2. Check in WHEN YOU ARRIVE at each location by sending an EMAIL with a photo of the location to firstname.lastname@example.org. INCLUDE YOUR NAME IN THE EMAIL and tell us where you are.
3. BEFORE LEAVING, Check OUT of each location by a SEPARATE EMAIL (email@example.com). Include YOUR NAME, the number of bags of trash collected and a photo of the trash collected. BOTH EMAILS MUST BE RECEIVED!
4. While still at the location enter your hours in Track It Forward. (Track It Forward has an app that can be downloaded to your phone). You can also go to our website and access it on the home page, under the "Volunteer" heading. This will be the true tracker for your hours, so it is VERY IMPORTANT that you do it to assure that we can report your hours properly. You will be required to enter the location, hours, and number of trash bags and recycle bags. For “Activity”, choose “Trash Pick Up: Community Service (court assigned)” . Enter each location separately. The direct website for the program is: www.trackitforward.com
5. If there are no dumpsters at the location, the trash will need to be taken from the location & dropped at a location with dumpsters or taken home to be disposed of in your personal trash bin. If it is a business, get permission from the manager before using their dumpster.
6. We prefer that trash and recycles are kept in separate bags. There are usually no recycle receptacles at the sites so this will need to be taken home to put out in your recycle bin.
7. If you need a signed verification letter, contact Marilyn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A list of locations that tend to get trashy is at the top of this page. This is to give you ideas of where to go. You may pick up trash anyplace as long as it is in Flower Mound.
If you go into any creek area, you should wear boots, long sleeves, long pants.
If you are completing volunteer hours that requires verification we can either meet so I can sign your sheet or I can send a letter for verification to you.
You may pick up a grabber to use and some trash bags from Pat at Roosters Men's Grooming Center - 2500 Cross Timbers/1171 (next to La Madeleine).
You will need to return the grabber when you are done completing your hours.
Also be sure to take water for drinking.
You are welcome to call if you have questions - 469-828-9074.
